Natuurmuseum Fryslân

Hidden ingenuity

The new storage cellar underneath the courtyard is one of the secrets of the Natuurmuseum Fryslân. It showed that there was much more room available within the monument than originally envisaged. The dusty attics could be cleared to make room for extra exhibition space and offices with a view. The glass roof of the courtyard even enabled the creation of a large auditorium-like room, which can have various uses.
